Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

Manitoba's 1000th Active Cache!

September 26, 2006 the cache 18 Carrots hidden by MHz and Gord from Morris is published and becomes the 1000th active cache in Manitoba!

Congratulations to all Manitoba geocachers on obtaining this milestone.
It all started with the first cache hidden in Manitoba February 5, 2001 (GC21C),
which is still active in a new location.

By 2003 there were around 50 active Manitoba caches.
The summer of 2004 brought that number closer to 100.

On May 2, 2005, The Stunt-man hid Train to Nowhere (GCNQY1). The cache description reads "Hopefully this is Mb's 200th cache"

On April 12th, 2006, winnipegk5 placed the cache "ESP Travel Bug Hotel", making it Manitoba's 500th active cache.

Cacher of the Month - September 2006



First of all thank you to my nominator for this honor of being recognized as cacher of the month. I can think of many others who are equally deserving of this honor.
As a new cacher it just goes to show the respect that is given to everyone in this activity no matter how long you have been caching.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?
  2. In May/06 I had purchased a new GPS and knew very little about how to use it. A co-worker who is very active in the cubs/scouting movement knew someone who was an active Geocacher and asked him about it on my behalf. They in turn referred me to Geocaching.com and the rest is history. The addiction is real, the compassion is real etc.
